In case you didn’t get it, this is the Best…..Conference…..Ever!
Our experience in the first two days has been absolutely great! Our Milwaukee JCC consists of Ellen Kendall (Marketing Director), Branislava Radicevic (Director of Finance) and Allan Bogan (Associate Executive Director). Our delegation may be small in size, but each of us are learning a big amount of important information from the sessions we’ve been attending.
We’ve taken the opportunity to meet so many incredible colleagues, both from our specific job tracks, as well in our Choose Your Own Learning Sessions (a type of elective-style learning sessions).
Outside of the formal sessions, we are making a point to spend time with some of the impressive leadership staff of JCC Association, and meeting new friends as well.
At today’s lunch session (a session led by Sara Sless from the JCC Association office in Jerusalem), Allan had the great honor of speaking to the entire conference about his recent experience with the Milwaukee JCC staff on their 12-day seminar in Israel. He talked about how impactful and meaningful it is for all of us to do whatever we can to get to Israel and bring back knowledge, stories, and connections from Israel to your local JCC and community.
We’re enjoying the 90 degree weather (between sessions), and not missing the 2-inches of hail back in Wisconsin.
Can’t wait to bring back all of the great ideas and information we’re learning to share with our Milwaukee JCC colleagues, Board members and JCC members.
Dan Deutsch is the man!
Lastly, this is the Best Conference Ever!
